Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) announced today the effectiveness of a 1-for-5 reverse split of its common stock. Shares of Beazer Homes common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange under the Company’s existing symbol “BZH” upon the opening of the NYSE on October 12, 2012.

Beazer Homes’ stockholders approved the reverse stock split at a special meeting of stockholders held today. As a result, every five shares of Beazer Homes common stock outstanding have been combined into one share of common stock, reducing the number of shares of Beazer Homes common stock outstanding from approximately 123 million to approximately 24.6 million. In addition, the number of authorized shares will be reduced from 180 million shares to 100 million shares.

After discussion with several institutional stockholders, the Company’s Board of Directors has determined that it will propose and recommend at its upcoming 2013 annual meeting a further decrease in the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance from 100 million to 63 million.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Instead, Beazer Homes’ transfer agent will aggregate all fractional shares that otherwise would have been issued as a result of the reverse stock split and those shares will be sold into the market. Stockholders who would have held a fractional share of Beazer Homes common stock will receive a cash payment from the net proceeds of that sale in lieu of such fractional share.

Upon the opening of the NYSE on October 12, 2012, shares of Beazer Homes common stock will trade under a new CUSIP number (07556Q 881) and a new ISIN (US07556Q8814).
